My DH will ask me "What day of the week is Thanksgiving this year?" (He's from Russia.)
DS is almost 40 months and he still wears soft stars when it is not too cold or rainy.
In CA you are entitled to waive the requirement for reasons of "personal belief." Here is the vaccination record form: http://www.cdph.ca.gov/programs/immu...nts/pm286b.pdf On the back of the form, there is a box titled PERSONAL BELIEFS AFFADAVIT. Sign and date. That's it
Grindstone is very TF-friendly, and can be ordered online, but it is expensive. http://www.grindstonebakery.com/ We need to get back into the habit of making our own
I didn't look at the link, so I don't know what they are buying (huge pile of plastic crap?), but really, if someone has the money and they want to spend it on their kids, who am I to criticize them?
